The majority of the time the air is fairly clear in Davis. There are times when the air quality in the valley gets bad, especially when there are fires in the area. Air pollution caused by human activities is also a concern. The YSAQMD is the local governing body that concerns itself with the air. Locally, air quality is studied at Yolo-Solano Air Quality Management District http://www.ysaqmd.org/
You can get more information about air quality, including realtime data for many counties at http://www.airquality.org. Other options are http://weather.weatherbug.com/CA/Davis-weather/air-quality.html and http://www.airnow.gov/index.cfm?action=airnow.local_city&cityid=274
